Nine-year-old James Barney Jr. of Florida was taking a dip in a lake when a 400 pound alligator tried to make a meal of him. Miraculously, the boy fended him off with a few quick hits and Barney only has bite marks to show from it. In a few years if you meet someone by the same name, be very careful during your game of "Two Truths and a Lie," is all we're saying.
Check out some of the interview footage via Huffington Post here:
So, a little setup for this one: Firstly, Nancy Grace is a noxious demagogue and we shouldn't be humoring her. Just throwing that out there. Secondly, why would the child in question just... show up in the basement after all this time spent searching the house? And finally, dad here seems simultaneously defensive and elated in such a way that it's impossible to get a read on him. Point is, what in the heck is going on in this interview?
Alternatively, is the world just a cynical enough place that we can even entertain the thought that something is amiss here? And with that, I'm going back to bed and not thinking about Nancy Grace for another six months.
